I bought a set of the squidder plates last weeK, very nicely made as usual. Built a reel using one of Randyís XN frame and spool with a progear handle. Nice little package for 12lb mono. 
I used the stock dog and filed down the ďtangĒ so it fit. As usual the little spring went flying so I scrounged one out of a cigarette lighter thatís much stiffer, big noise for a little reel,  haha
Hereís a few pics and one next to a CC squidder kit

Tom, thanks again for making these plates for us. Ordered the set on Veteranís Day and it already showed up!

The kit is truly great, and went together flawlessly. This was definitely worth the wait.

Hello again,

I just want to add a bit about these kits. Not only is the fit and finish perfect on the Tiburon XN frame that Randy so graciously helped us get, but they come with all the goodies you need to make a killer reel.

My kit came with a matching eccentric lever and SS dog on top of all the other parts weíve come to expect from Tom. Iíve been using the stock brass dog with a SS sleeve. Luckily I didnít lose the spring in the old dog, because I would have to go next door to 7-11 to buy a lighter to tear apart.

I dressed up the reel with a Pro Challenger star and handle from Alan, and a ultimate 5+1 drag kit from Bryan.

I love the way this reel looks and feels. Now Iím on the quest for endless free spool. Currently using TSI 321 on the bearings.

Thanks to everyone with the design and machining skills that make this so much fun.

Nick

Nick,
   That one is off the charts...excellent job matching up the colors! I seriously doubt you could buy a better reel for the money. Cool

Thanks Mo, it means a lot coming from such a skilled reel tuner.
I think the only thing I would do to it now would be to wish for high-speed  SS gears

Late to the game but used the Black Friday deal and finally got time to put her together.  Sometimes simple red and black works too.  All the goodies from the Ohana inside and out.  Now just in time to go hunting home guards.

I am getting ready as well. With a brainfart forgetting I needed a fine star to use with Alan's sleeve, I am waiting for a package Maureen shipped yesterday that includes Bryan's drag kit. I'll get to it when the time is right. 2020 sucks, I spent the birthday making a pot of beans and answering phone calls and replying to emails from the office.. I did order Tom's blank offs for my 113H since I had been waiting for an excuse to get the assembly tools he also sells to justify the shipping charge as a percentage on the blank offs, so all is as well as it can be.
